Residential Water Rates

Customer BrochureAUB has a conservation-rate system.  This means the amount you pay per each 1,000 gallons used is affected by the total amount of water used.   For instance, if you use up to 5,000 gallons in a month the charge is the same for each 1,000-gallon increment in that 5,000 gallon total.   If you use 6,000 gallons the first 5,000 are at the first tier and the additional 1,000 are billed at the next tier.  A minimum monthly billing is in place based on the size meter at the service location.

 

The table below shows:

  • The minimum monthly charge and the water-use tiers that coincide with usage rates.
  • The tiered price per 1,000 gallons of use for various meter sizes.
  • Example of billing amounts based on various use levels.
